Wife swap blues

  1. Just a rant..
    I was watching wife swap and here's the fill in replacement mom filling in for her other's nursing gig!

    Well, the show said the gal she was filling in for was a nurse???!!!

    Similar to OK...June Cleaver's a doctor and so and so is filling in for her for the day....grrr!

    Another media slam on us nurses lol

    Usually they don't excpet the replacement to do much on their jobs. They had one who was filling in for some big marketing manager, and all she did was answer phones or something.

    I've seen this one...no, they were not both nurses. In typical WifeSwap fashion, the two women were complete opposites, with completely different lifestyles. I don't remember exactly what the "fill-in" nurse did, but it was probably something like "homemaker," or "faith-healer," or something.

    This episode was quite demeaning...it basically sent the message anyone can be trained to be a nurse in one day, as if it were the same as working at McDonald's, or something. I'm guessing that on the show, the "fill-in" nurse only shadowed an actual nurse & maybe helped file some paperwork.

    [s]One was probably a medical assistant (nurse) the other a preschool teacher's assistant.[/s]


    My gripe is the show should have clarified if this nurse was a registered nurse or not...and that there seems to be no accountability in the media when such a mistake is made. For example, the producers of this series wish to express an appology regarding the misrepresentation of a professional...yatayatayataaah...

    I love that show! What a bunch of train wrecks! There was one from last year who was super religious and she was placed with a wiccan family or some such, any ways she flipped out and tore up the check---well I just saw a preview for the new season and she is back! (was it that one or the other, there are 2 similar shows)?

    You know, that woman actually ended up keeping the money when she found out it was allotted to some stuff her kids wanted... and a gastric bypass for her.

    Go to this website to watch her...

    She looked totally possessed. If I had been one of the little girls I would have been crying, she scared me so bad. Thank goodness I'm a godless heathen.:gandalf:

    That women is why many people belive that people who say that they are christians are freaks. Most people who say they are christians do not behave like that, unfourtunatly she got on TV and gave a perfect example of what most christians are not.

    She is just crazy - lots of crazy folks have religious fixations - I did feel so badly for those kids though.

    Makes me sad though that people think Christians act this way . . . .
